Hi Loubie :) I have been wanting to post on here for the last couple of weeks but didnt know where to start derrr :roll: I am pleased to meet you. I have such alot to say but where do i begin lol.

I have been in pain etc for the last 2 years. I Had to give my job up earlier on this year due to the pain in my lower back and down my right leg. I was first told i had sciatica. Over the last 2 years i have had: 2 x-rays, 1 MRI Scan, various blood tests. Chiropractic help ? also physio therapy, i have tried heat treatment, cold treatment, TENS machine. Oh and then we come to medication well after trying numerous pain killers I am currently on Pregabalin 450mg a day, also on dosulepin 50mg. Do they help? not really :cry:

I am currently receiving treatment for Iritis (Inflammation of the iris) this is how i came to be refered to the local hospital to a Rhomourtoligist (my spelling is atrocious). Well having been in the drs room for 15 mins and an examination he tells me he is 95% certain i have Fibromyalgia. He gave me a leaflet then sent me for blood tests and a scan and told me to come back in 6 weeks for the results. Well to say I am confused is an understatement. Where do i go from here? Anyone out there can offer me advise or tell me more on this diagnosis.

Many thanks for any replies

Rachel xx

:welcome: Rachel. I have moved your post into "where to say hello" as its your 1st one.

It can take a time to sink in, :hugs: there is lots of info and support on the forum.

In most cases once you get the dx from the rheumy you are discharged back to your gp who takes over the care. Some Rheumies will send their patients to pain clinics.

Have a good read up on as much info as you can so you know what you are up against and any questions just ask. :wave: [chocolate]
